today. i think all of us recognize that the energy has to come from the grassroots. that those of us who feel that the president needs to go further, and i think it barack obama were sitting here, he would say, yes, i like to go farther in terms of dealing with these issues of poverty and specific issues of the black community, but he would also say, you have to push me. that does not necessarily come from him deciding which are the greatest party as he has to deal with. just as johnson also said, look, i have a lot of priorities as president. if you love me to deal with is a voting rights issue, as king did in 1964 and 1965, you have to push me. king went out and helped stage the montgomery march along with lots of other people. that pushed johnson to act on the issue of voting rights. i think that we have to take on our responsibility as citizens to say, it is not enough to go to the polls every year and go. yes, when we go to the polls as african-americans, we are going to vote for barack obama as the better of the two candidates. but our responsibility than be caught -- then begins o
the administration, to destroy the energy of the government and to substitute the pleasure, caprice or artifices, to the regular decisions of a respectable majority. that's just what the republicans have been doing. since 2007 when they lost the majority in the senate, they mounted or threatened to mount nearly 400 filibusters, blocking everything from equal pay to equal work, job bills and reform. as a result, there are more vacancies on the federal courts today than when president obama first took office. but hold on. when democrats were in the minority and threatening to filibuster against george w. bush's judicial nominees, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they want. >> now the shoe is on the other foot. i asked l
have the china exposure. others benefit from energy and infrastructure or improvement in housing so it seemed like there were fundamental reasons to be more optimistic on that group of stocks. >> susie: okay. well, we'll see how it goes this year. thanks for coming on the program. we've been speaking with adam pozen. >> susie: it's not easy being a retailer these days, especially if you rely on customers buying at your store. many consumers come in and browse, but make their purchases online. but tech innovations are helping to change that. erika miller got a sneak peek at the intel booth at the national retail federation's convention. >> reporter: adidas had a problem. that's the company most americans call "adidas". it needed to figure out how to get customers to buy merchandise in its stores, instead of on- line for less. it found the answer in this interactive display, which has boosted traffic, and dollars spent per transaction. >> normally, in a physical store you can get maybe 200 different products. but with this, you are not really limited. but rather than just put a little
or representatives debated relief from superstorm sandy today. energy analyst kevin book expects governments will increasingly be forced to spend money to mitigate or adapt to climate change. >> with every storm, with every flood, we're getting closer and closer to talking about how he handle climate change rather than how we stop it. >> reporter: pressure to address climate change may also come from outside the united states. the european union is threatening to slap trade the u.s. refuses to buy credits to offset greenhouse gas emissions from transatlantic flights. even china may help force the u.s. to act. beijing is under pressure to clear the air as pollution makes it harder and harder to breath. >> coal pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions, is something they have got to get down in their country if they're going to live there. as the largest emitter, the bogey man to which all western nation's point, begins to clean up its game, it's going to make it harder to say no. >> reporter: and progressives are hoping the president will bypass congress and use his regulatory authority u
represented a lot for boeing, didn't it. it really was the new technology in place, the new energy savings for global airlines and on pace to double the number of dream liners it delivered it year. started out in 2011 which was already late with just 346 last year, more than 80 this year. with this uncertainty what kind of threat to its earnings gross potential. >> it's interesting. when you talk about the dream liner and boeing, when you talk about earnings over the next two years, most analysts have this booked at zero margin so from an eps perspective there is really no impact from a revenue going forward it will be around 20% of revenue, so the story for boeing is not necessarily earnings, it's cash generation so, the market is looking for, you know, when will the 787 turn cash positive versus accounting positive. and so that before all of this was a number sort of late 2014, 2015. >> so you have gone to sell here with boeing shares trading in the low 70s with this kind of headline risk call, not necessarily a financial concern. at what point would boeing share price present just a com
%. the energy and utility sectors both were higher by 0.9% earnings were in focus with plenty of attention on general electric. the conglomerate earned 44 cents per share, a penny better than estimates and up from a year ago. g.e. said demand from china and other emerging economies helped offset the uncertainty with customers in the u.s. and europe. shares gained 3.5%. volume tripled with the stock closing above $22 for the first time since october. g.e. said boeing has not changed its delivery schedule for g.e. jet engines used on the 787 dreamliner jet. investment bank morgan stanley had a much stronger than anticipated end to the year with investment banking and trading revenues up sharply. that helped the company earn 45 cents per share, reversing a year ago loss and well above what was expected. the bank has been trying to shift its business away from trading for its own behalf into more of a wealth advisory and client-focused model. shares rallied 7.9%. volume tripled as the stock sits at 17 month highs. like other investment banks, morgan stanley has been helped out by companies rai
the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy on. >> do you agree with that. >> if you look at the deal with congress, they tried every other relationship, the obama, the reed-mcconnell relationship but it was the biden relationship that set it off. he know he how to run a meeting. he runs through them. that's how you run a meeting. he know he how to do that. >> recently the president at a press conference had to say i'm a friendly guy, i'm a people guy, but joe biden really is that. >> joe biden is. and joe biden's excesses of being a people person and gregarious and enormously approachable, have been very important to this administration and to what david pointed out what happened, particularly in the last couple of months. briefly, we always here this is the most important vice president in the history of the world. how does he rank as vice presidents go? >> he actually just may be -- this may be one of the rare occasions where the superlative applies. we heard it about dick cheney in a different way. cheney, you had a sense -- cheney was in many ways provided the intelle
